Central Line falling concrete incident reinforces case against driverless trains

RMT says that Central Line falling concrete incident reinforces case against driverless trains and for protecting track patrols.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"This incident of falling concrete from development works above the Central Line is not the first of its kind and with whole swathes of London now a building site it rams home the dangers for the tube network as developers rush ahead with their projects. 

"The incident could very easily have ended up in tragedy and reinforces once again the argument against Boris Johnson and Zac Goldsmith's lethal ‎plans for a driverless tube network. RMT will also now step up the fight to defend and expand in-house track patrols against the threat of casualisation and privatisation."
